Fresh on the heels of the 2015 album Dedication, Kauflin and his trio will take the stage at Roger Williams University on Thursday, Sept. 10, for an intimate performance. Part of the Live@RWU series – which has hosted jazz luminaries Freddy Cole, Aaron Diehl, Johnny O’Neal and Joe Locke to date – the concert is free and open to the public.
